Corporate nurse Pauline Sinclair is having a week from Hell. She saved her boss' life, found a dead body in the company gym, and been unjustly accused of having an affair with her boss as well as trying to murder him. Now, she's forced to nurse her ex-fianc through a virulent bout of flu-not that he's grateful. Seeing him again has only reinforced what she's known all along: he's a hard, stubborn man and she loves him more than ever.

Marcellus Cavanaugh can't believe his business partner hired Pauline to be the company nurse. Even more unbelievable is that his partner is in a coma after being poisoned and their company is knee deep in mystery and murder. Forced to work with Pauline to find the killer, Marcellus realized he's never stopped loving her and he'll do whatever it takes to keep her in his life-including clear her of murder.

CONSPIRACY is a sensual, fast-paced literary vehicle of murder, intrigue and passion that will linger in our hearts long after the ride is over. Congratulations, Ms. Walker. You have risen from princess to princess royal in the court of romantic suspense. (Apr., 395 pp., $4.99)
